Bold But Patient

| | Comments (1)

Acts 24:1-27

Paul has now been sent off to Caesarea to appear before Felix, the Governor. He has an initial trial before Felix where he is again accused by the Jewish leaders. But Felix doesn't buy it. However, instead of deciding the case, he sends the Jewish leaders away and keeps Paul in custody...for a long time. Two years pass, Felix leaves office and Paul? Well, he's left sitting in prison. Now we know from what we've read so far in Acts that Paul is an active guy. He is constantly on the go and constantly preaching. So sitting in the same place with limited access to people for two years had to have been hard for him. Even so, what we see from Paul is patience.

Being patient is hard for me. I really struggle with being patience, especially when it involves doing work for the Lord. So how are you doing in the patience area? How do you work on developing patience? How has the Lord helped you in this area? Tami W.

This reminds me not to create my own plan but to seek God's will first and formost. Paul was patient those two years in prison and because of his patience and obedience to the will of God, lives were changed.

If I have an opportunity to serve my Lord, I want to do it to the best of my ability to honor Him. In my excitement I may get ahead of God's plan. As all the aspects of service has a great deal to do with timing, and my impatience may have an adverse affect on the outcome of God's perfect plan.
